An Táin (Graphic Novel) by Colmán Ó Raghallaigh, Artwork: The Cartoon Saloon

Queen Méabh is overcome with jealously when she fails to best her husband, Ailill, in a competition of wealth. It all comes down to Ailill’s bull, an Fionnbheannach, a beast who’s equal cannot be found in Ireland. Or can it?

A stunning new edition of An Táin, or as it is better known Táin Bó Cuailgne (The Cattle Raid of Cooley). Based on oldest known manuscript in Irish, written some time before 1106 A.D., it is counted among the greatest stories in the world. The chivalry, bravery and tragedy of the original is woven seamlessly into this beautiful graphic novel.
